Help me track down an advertisement.

I'm looking for a Mitsubishi advertisement that screened in cinemas five to ten years ago, if memory serves. It was distinctive because it was animated in 2D in a very anime-esque style. It featured a little girl travelling in the back seat of a car through a spooky landscape. That's all I remember. Can you track it down for me?

Marketing of Popular Children's Movies?

The Smurfs 2 movie is about to come out. I live in Los Angeles where we are heavily saturated with movie premiere billboards and signage because, y'know, we eat our own. All the Smurfs in the adverts seem to be throwing "gang signs." Are these adverts actually depicting gang signs? Or am I mistaken? It seems like a promotion of a violent subculture, but maybe I'm old and just don't get it. Thanks!

"Megapixels" "What? "MEGAPIXELS!"

I'm looking for an Sony TV spot for digital cameras. I'm guessing it was out around 2003. It had a guy walking around town asking anyone he could find about digital cameras police officers, construction workers, maybe a crossing guard. In one scene he is yelling down a manhole asking about megapixels. I've Googgled all I can Google and haven't been able to find it online anywhere. [more inside]

How can I find a Wayne Newman flu ad from 1999 or 2000?

For a friend: I'm trying to find a video of an advertisement that Wayne Knight (of Seinfeld fame) did for a anti-flu drug called Relenza in the early 2000s. This is for a marketing class. Any ideas? I've tried YouTube and the drug companies are stingy with giving out ads because the FDA forbids them from releasing outdated ads in any way.
